MESA, Ariz, Jan. 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Atlis Motor Vehicles (Nasdaq: AMV), a vertically integrated electric vehicle technology ecosystem company, and the first battery cell manufacturer to be fully owned and operated in the US, today debuted the design of their AC/DC charge handle and charging cable, capable of delivering up to 1.5MW of power. The Atlis team successfully delivered greater than 1,000 volts and more than 1,200 amps of electric current through the cable while maintaining a temperature below 30 degrees Celsius on the surface with minimal loss of power.
Similar in size to a typical 350 kW CCS, the Atlis cable is designed to be less rigid and more malleable during handling while delivering up to 1.5MW of power. Atlis plans to open this standard to its peers to enable mass adoption in the medium and heavy-duty vehicle and e-mobility charging space.
“Atlis is well on its way to building the infrastructure needed to support the transition of contractors, craftsmen, miners, earth movers, ranchers, and others from ICE to EV,” said Mark Hanchett, Atlis Motor Vehicles’ Founder and CEO. “In order to drive adoption across our intended market segment, building our own cable is the logical path forward. Cables available in the market today simply cannot deliver this amount of energy without being too heavy or overheating. The team developed a cable that maintains temperature, remains cool to the touch while charging, and designed a handle that’s user-friendly and small enough for almost anyone to maneuver. Today’s successful test brings us one step closer to realizing our vision of a 1.5MW charging network.”
Amperage, or the strength of electric current, is a defining factor in determining how quickly a vehicle can charge. Charging times that mirror the time it takes to fill a diesel tank is a key requirement for those seeking to electrify fleet trucks, municipal transportation, heavy equipment, and other commercial vehicles. The Company believes that its cable design is a critical step in successfully implementing a network of 1.5MW charging stations needed to accelerate electrification of the Work industry.
